The club’s mission is to foster and encourage the love of boating, sailing, aquatic and other sports, and to promote the health and pleasure of our members through social interaction at various club events. Our beautiful facility includes a clubhouse with dining room, dance floor, industrial kitchen, ice machine, lounge with fireplace, rest rooms with showers, recreational facilities include ping-pong, pool table, card table, tv’s and picnic & beach area.
